By The C is coming to Newcastle in January next year with a line-up with some of our greatest bands. Including electric live performances from Australia’s finest, Icehouse; our favourite party band, the Sunnyboys; the brilliant, Do Re Mi and pop legends, Mental As Anything, with an additional killer act to be announced 2 December.
Icehouse, formed by Iva Davies is one of those bands that have managed to transcend age groups with an insane career spanning 40 years. Generations of music lovers have been brought up with hits such as Crazy, Electric Blue, We Can Get Together, Great Southern Land and Hey Little Girl just to name a few. One of Australia’s greatest live acts, Icehouse is set to present a show not to be missed.
After a 21-year break, Sunnyboys re-entered the fray in 2012 at the behest ofa Hoodoo Gurus invitation after agreeing to regroup ‘just for fun and for old times sake’. Six years later and Sunnyboys have notched up a resume the envy of any band.
The legends of 80’s alt-pop Do Re Mi gave us danceable and thought-provoking songs like Standing on Wires, Man Overboard, Warnings moving Clockwise and Adultery.
Still as brilliant as ever, the award-winning band, Mental As Anything are continually going strong with sell-out performances. Their entertaining and timeless music will have you enjoying songs such as the classics The Nips are Getting Bigger, Too Many Times, Mr Natural & Live it Up. More than three decades later, their music is still highly listenable and recognisable with their identifiable brand of garage pop.
